Braille Screen Input and Various Symbols?

Forum
Braille on Apple Products

Hello Applevis community.

Recently I bought an iPhone 6S and was wondering if there is some sort of reference on the web for some of the various braille symbols used with BSI.

I know braille, but haven't used it in so long, let's just say UEB was unheard of around 15 years ago, so while I know the basics, that is to say, I know grade 2 UK english braille, which is what we use to use here in Australia, I don't know the dot combinations for things like an underscore.

Actually, the underscore I discovered by accident, that being dots 4/6, followed by dots 3/6, so was wondering what some other symbols you'd use on a dayly bases might be?

Stuff like the hash sign, ellipsis, decimal point.

I'm currently using it in uncontracted mode, set to UEB.

The ellipsis in grade 2 english UK braille use to be 3 dot 3's while the decimal point was a dot 2.

Have things really changed that much?

Hash tag symbol in BSI is just the number sign. But in BSI u need to space after the number sign and then backspace. Because if u dont it will think what u r writing is a number. So when doing hash tags write the number sign space then backspace and write your hash tag. Hope that helps and makes since.
